Low Carb Luxury Recipe!
Peppery Turnip Fries

Ingredients:
  • 8 medium turnips (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Splenda
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (sea salt works best)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil spray
  • Lime juice

Pepper Turnips and Roast Peel the turnips with a vegetable peeler, slice and cut into 2 1/2-by-1/2-inch sticks. Pour 1/2 cup heavy cream into a large bowl and place the turnip sticks into the cream. Fill bowl with cold water until the turnips are completely covered. Add 1 teaspoon Splenda. Swirl a bit to mix and allow to sit in cream mixture for 10-15 minutes. (This cream-soaking step removes the "bite" flavor of the turnips, leaving them with a milder, more potato-like flavor.) Rinse in colander with cool water and pat dry.

Preheat oven to 425°F.
Combine turnip sticks with the nutmeg, pepper, sea salt and Parmesan cheese in a large plastic (Ziploc-type) bag. Seal the bag and shake well to coat the turnip sticks.

Spray 2 large baking sheets lightly with the olive oil spray. Spread the turnips in a single layer on the sheets and spray again with the olive oil.

Bake in a preheated 425°F oven for 15 minutes. Turn the fries over and continue baking for 15 minutes, until the fries are tender and golden in color. Serve hot with a sprinkle of lime juice.

Makes 8 servings. Approximately 4.5 carbohydrate grams per serving.
